Built in Payson, Utah in the mid 1850's. When John and Sarah Fairbanks settled in Utah, they lived in their covered wagon, using carpet for the door and a single stove for warmth. They later moved to Payson, where they built a log cabin to live in until this home was completed. This unusually large house with its ornamental detailing indicates the upper middle class status achieved by the Fairbanks family. The upper bedroom on the south side, with its own fireplace, was called "Brigham Young's Room" because he used the Fairbanks home as a headquarters while staying in Payson on his way to southern communities.
